I was sent “Princess Karakul: The Runaway Bear” children’s book from Dorrance Publishing to review. The first thing I noticed about this book were the bright, colorful illustrations. This book is a tale about a grizzly bear princess named Karakul and her family adventures. It helps teach about anger, forgiveness, and the importance of family. It is a good easy reader book for older kids. I really enjoyed the story and the illustrations, and Sydney enjoyed looking at the bears.
The great thing about this book is that it is a children’s book written by a child! It was written by Rachaell Angelica Robinson when she was about 13 years old and was born with cerebral palsy. This was her first published book, and she wrote it with the help of her grandmother.
I love it when kids show such a love for reading that they work at writing their own books!
